DZAT DR-10
ø8mm Dynamic Driver

DZAT is a very promising brand. They excel in unique designs for their products, and their products' presentations are true eye-candies. Their first in-ear earphones got me curious and I had to try them. I have to admit, these earphones are good, but I wasn't entirely satisfied, considering the hype this brand made over these earphones.

Pros
Cons
  • A more than acceptable sound quality, pretty clear and neutral.
  • Pretty good build quality, except the thin cable.
  • A beautiful presentation in a premium package.
  • The sound quality isn't good enough for the price.
  • These earphones aren't affected much by amplification.
  • Lack of accessories and a good variety of ear tips, considering the price.
  • Please, don't use a thin flat cable, it lowers the durability drastically.

  • The housings have sound signature tuning knobs on their backs. In reality, these knobs do absolutely nothing, I confirmed it by measurement.
Comfort & Fit

I couldn't get a proper seal with the included tips, becuase most of them are too small, and only one pair of large tips (which are too large). The foam tips are completely useless because they are tiny and not made of actual memory foam.

Lows / Bass

The bass is well present, but is kind of struggling when pushed to its limits, i.e. hip-hop, dubstep and other bass-heavy music genres. The bass sounds shaky, like it's about to get distorted.

Mids / Vocals

The vocals sound nice, but nothing extraordinary. These drivers handle complex music genres pretty good, but the vocals don't sound emphasized enough.

Highs / Treble

The highs are very nice and precise, but they slightly overpower the mids.
